A Blast From The Past

Downtown Liverpool's website carries an unedited version of a discussion (although the description ceases to apply as the exchanges go on) between Jim Hancock, local political correspondent for Granada & the BBC in Manchester over the years, & Derek Hatton, yes, good old Degsy, which was originally broadcast on CityTalk Radio at the end of June: or .
Hatton is in no mood for a tame Q&A & skewers some of the more risible anti-Militant generalisations that Hancock dredges up, particularly the belief that the Militant council led to major businesses leaving the city. When challenged by Hatton to name just one business which left at the time, Hancock stammers, hesitates & withdraws none too gracefully.
